Van Helsing

 (2004)

Van Helsing Blu-ray delivers stunning video and great audio, but overall it's a mediocre Blu-ray release

Gabriel Van Helsing is a man cursed with a past he cannot recall and driven by a mission he cannot deny. Charged by a secret organization to seek out and defeat evil the world over, his efforts to rid the world of its nightmareish creatures have been rewarded with the title that now follows him: murderer. Van Helsing roams the globe an outcast, a fugitive, a loner, himself hunted by those who don't understand the true nature of his calling. When dispatched to the shadowy world of Transylvania, Van Helsing finds a land stll mired inpast-- where legendary creatures of darkness come to life--a place ruled over by the evil, seductive and unfeatable vampire, Count Dracula. And it is Dracula that Van Helsing has been sent to terminate. Anna Valerious is one of the last of a powerful royal family, now nearly annihilated by Dracula. A fearless hunter in her own right, Anna is bent on avenging her ancestors and ending an ancient curse by killing the vampire. Joined by a common foe, Van Helsing and Anna set out to destroy Dracula along with his empire of fear. But in challenging an enemy who never dies, Van Helsing uncovers a secret he never imagined and comes face-to-face with the unresolved mysteries of his own enshrouded past.

Van Helsing Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

If there's any good to the bloated excess of Van Helsing, it's that the film delivers a non- stop sugar rush of eye candy that's expertly reproduced on Blu-ray with an excellent 1080p/AVC encoded transfer. The film opens in Dr. Frankenstein's castle with a stark and stunning monochromatic presentation. Black levels are deep and inky—a trait that holds up throughout most of the film—and whites are ever so slightly overblown, giving the image a bold gradation. While I found myself wishing the black and white portions were longer—I would have almost preferred to see the whole film this way—the rest of Van Helsing is soaked in stable and saturated colors. Witness the icy blues of the Transylvanian village, the warm, yellow tones that pervade Dracula's masquerade ball, and the velvety crimson of Kate Beckinsale's cloak. An ultra- thin layer of grain covers the image and convinces that yes, Van Helsing was shot on film and no, digital noise reduction hasn't been injudiciously applied. The look is clean and sharp, with detail apparent in fine textures and an impressive sense of depth and overall clarity. Yes, you'll find some occasionally crushed shadow delineation, but most of these instances seem intentional. This is a true-to-source transfer, and as such, much of the CGI now looks dated and over-abused, with obvious, digitally altered vistas and creature work that doesn't hold up so well. Still, it is what it is, and this transfer will please those few remaining fans of film as well as eye candy junkies looking for their next visual fix.


Van Helsing Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

While Van Helsing's HD-DVD release contained a mere Dolby Digital-Plus 5.1 mix, the film gets a more proper treatment on Blu-ray with a powerful DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track. Too powerful at times, actually. The track is very enveloping, with near constant engagement from the rear channels. Listen to the buzzing electrical surges of Dr. Frankenstein's life-giving apparatus crackle all around you. Hear demon wings swoosh by in keenly implemented pans, thunder ripple outward in rolling waves, and a crowd of surrounding villagers seething with monster-hating animosity. The soundfield is nearly always alive with directional sound, atmosphere-establishing ambience, and Alan Silvestri's massive orchestral score. It's very easy, then, for voices to get lost in the mix—considering the tepid dialogue, some may consider this a plus—and I was constantly juggling my remote, trying to balance out the volumes of the quieter, conversational scenes and the loud, chaotic action sequences. The LFE channel gets an adequate workout here, but you'll often find the booming bass to be overwhelming, burying shouted dialogue and upper-register noises in a quaking avalanche of low-end. The film does sound great, and if it weren't for the frequent necessity of volume boosting/decreasing I'd be tempted to give Van Helsing's audio a 9/10.
